Support is available to help to secure up to 3,000 jobs at Scotland's larger hotels until the start of the summer 2021 tourism season, through grants and a holistic business review with bespoke support.
The Hotel Support Programme has been set up to protect sustainable employment within Scotland's larger hotels in the wake of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The scheme will help a targeted number of hotels invest and adapt in a way that protects locally important jobs in the medium to long term.
Through the £14 million programme, individual support packages will be designed for selected hotels, in line with their unique needs. This could be made up of a mix of consultancy, business advice and funding. Some examples of what may be included are:
Funding will be awarded per individual hotel, while other support may be delivered per hotel or across a hotel group as appropriate.
Larger hotels and chains of hotels in Scotland that have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic may apply. The hotel must provide jobs that are critical to the local economy and the recovery of the tourism sector.
Expressions of interest being accepted until 9 September 2020 (17:00 BST).
